Pinto signs new Barca deal

April 9, 2010

Barcelona reserve goalkeeper Jose Pinto has signed a one-year contract extension.

Pinto, 34, was out of contract until the end of the season but will now remain at Camp Nou until June 2011.

The 5 million euro buy-out clause in his contract remains the same.

Pinto joined Barca from Celta Vigo in January 2008, initially on loan, as cover for first-choice goalkeeper Victor Valdes.
